Excerpt from our 1975 booklet, which documented a selection of the recognition we receive.
"I would like to add to my daughters endowment and ask to deliver... You may be interested in hearing how good our experience with your company is. We have obtained our endowment from you for four generations and are still using 90 year old table linen of yours, which survived the flight from the East."

"I would like to acknowledge receiving your packages today. Everything was to my content. I need to express your company my highest regards. The delivery date was precisely adhered to and all the laundry was done very accurately. In the entire dowry procurement, you are the first company that delivers everything so promptly! Thanks again."
Bischofsheim/Rhön, 04.07.1961 (Prinzessin zur Lippe)
"Your honor, I send my sincere thanks for your kind attention given to me by delivering the beautiful place settings.
I have always had a preference for silverware and "Linen from Bielefeld"; the former has disappeared, since I am no longer a member of public life, but the latter continues to exist and I am grateful for the joy of the heart, for your gracious gift contributing to my hobby and its excellent weaving. "

"This year I celebrate my 40th wedding anniversary. In early October, and before I went to my children, I brought order to my linen closet. Everything was purchased in 1886 from you by my mother, Baronin von Kessel auf Haake, and from the entire bedding I merely renewed two sheets and three duvet covers, nothing else, the crested laundry is without stopper. I wanted to inform you, because I know that you rejoice that an old client is satisfied and the laundry is so well kept, 40 years in a large household with five children, this has to be praised. May you always continue to receive thanks, as here by your long-time and grateful customer."
